I am pleased to report that our plan to sell old Côte Saint-Luc' street signs was a success.
Number of signs sold: 72
Amount of money raised: More than $2,500
Signs remaining: 78
Signs from side streets sold very well, whereas signs from major streets (such as Kildare Rd.) were not as popular. If we remove the major streets from the sale statistics, more than 65 percent of signs were sold.
The remaining signs will be sold at our annual Spring Fair in May.
From my original announcement of the sale on Facebook, interest came from former CSLers now residing across Canada and in the United States. Even CTV News anchor Mutsumi Takahashi, who grew up on Westbourne Ave., called and personally came to City Hall to buy her sign. We only did the sale for a two week period.
